23.06.2017 0 Comments
If you have an iPhone 5 or iPhone 5c, then you should think about buying a new model because the support of these devices ends this year. Still a few months before WWDC 2017 were rumors that the iPhone 5 will not get iOS 11, and at the conference, Apple is officially confirmed.
iOS 11 beta is not available for iPhone 5
The beta version of iOS 11 is available for many legacy devices, including iPhone 5s and iPhone 6, but iPhone 5 test update is not available.
iPhone 5 will not receive the final version of iOS 11
The inaccessibility of the iOS 11 beta for iPhone 5 means that the smartphone will not receive the final version. Apple has confirmed that iOS 11 can be installed on “iPhone 5s and newer, iPad Air, and iPad Pro, iPad 5 generation, iPad Mini 2 and later and iPod touch 6 generation.” So there are no surprises.
No new emojis
As the iPhone remains on iOS 5 10, the owners of the smartphone will not be able to use the new Emoji from iOS 11. The Unicode Consortium agreed on 56 new smileys for the new OS. Perhaps Apple will add them to owners of older models to iOS 10, but it especially should not count.
We can’t install watchOS 4 on Apple Watch
New emojis are not the only thing which will lose the iPhone 5.
In iOS 11 many innovations, including the new Siri, new control, new App Store, AirPlay 2, etc. the Company has also updated the mode “do Not disturb”, a slightly reworked Maps and a refreshed Apple Music.
Most importantly, the owners of the Apple Watch, which use a smart watch paired with iPhone 5 or 5c will not be able to upgrade to 4 watchOS. To install the latest updates on the Apple Watch paired smartphone must be running iOS 11.
If the company does not change the connection Protocol, iPhone 5 users will not be able to update the clock.
The 10.3.3 update iOS for iPhone 5
IPhone 5 will soon be available for iOS update 10.3.3, which is tested on the last month. The update focuses on improving stability and bug fixes. Since iOS 11 have already been announced, Apple is unlikely to add new functionality to the platform of the previous generation. iOS 10.3.3 is likely to be the last update for iPhone 5 and 5c.
